John Godber Company and Theatre Royal Wakefield 

Crown Prince

Thursday, 10 September, 2020 to Saturday, 19 September, 2020
Matcham Auditorium
Crown Prince

 

Written and Directed by John Godber OBE

What happens to climate change deniers when the climate changes?

The world is getting warmer and water is being rationed, but up at Beech Hill Bowling Club, Yorkshire champion Ted is blissfully ignorant. When his ‘Extinction Rebellion’ granddaughter Faye warns him of the impending crisis, the old time bowlers laugh in her face.

Fifteen years later, the bowling green is brown, water laps on the drive and bungalows are selling for
millions. Now everyone in Hull wants to live up on Beech Hill.

Ted and his team play on, but maybe Faye was right?

A radical environmental satire from John Godber after the huge critical and commercial success of Scary Bikers at Trafalgar Studios.
